AGP31 is the second of three dedicated to electronic and electroacoustic compositions by Ilhan Mimaroglu. I would have transcribed these some time ago, but I had assumed most or all of them were available on CD. Mimaroglu was one of the most creative composers working at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, starting in 1964. His purely electronic works sometimes feature the dry, nasally tonal palette typical of Columbia-Princeton compositions, while his works deriving from acoustic sound sources such as clarinet or rubber band tend to be richer and more appealing. But even when when the timbres are less beguiling than in some European electronic compositions of the period, Mimaroglu unfailingly has an excellent sense of rhythm and structure.
This second Mimaroglu installment covers the period from 1970-73. It is drawn from three LPs, all on American pressings with low to moderate levels of pressing noise. The installment includes a text file containing the liner notes from three of the six LPs from which AGP30-32 were transcribed. The other three LPs had either no liner notes or notes that added nothing in particular to the liner notes in the text file.
